Our Cambodia TEFL Experience offers a great opportunity to hone your English teaching skills in this sought after Southeast Asian travel hotspot. You’ll teach enthusiastic students in the colourful local community, explore and socialise with your fellow interns, and even get the chance to soak up the sun in the bustling beach resort of Sihanoukville – all with the support of an expert in-country team throughout.
Disregarding the country’s beautiful landscapes, incredible people and rich cultural heritage (also all huge deciding factors), I feel that two months is the perfect amount of time to find out if you like something or not and if you’re suited to it. Luckily for me, I loved it so much that I decided to stay on for a while longer.
